Predictions for Sony at GamesCom

Gimme Gimme Games writes about what they think Sony will reveal at GamesCom next week. (PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

PeaSFor  +   718d ago
a solid ps4 release date would be nice
Roper316  +   718d ago
I agreed with you but I still think the release date will be announced @ TGS though.
aiBreeze  +   718d ago
TGS isn't until September 19th.. I'd really hope for a known release date at least a few months before it's out.
dboyc310  +   718d ago
Naw it will happen in gamescon because a wider audience its watching. When TGS comes they only cater to the Japanese audience. Gamescon is like E3 more people get into it.
ohiostatesman  +   718d ago
I predict they will just show more stuff about knack and Killzone. Nothing really new or exciting in my opinion. Pls don't show Drive Club. Game is hideous.
ohiostatesman  +   718d ago
I don't think there's much that Sony can do for the PS Vita. Sold less than 15K in the US the last 4 weeks. Just 15K. It's really sad.
1nsomniac  +   717d ago
Like someone else said on another post I don't think they would be stupid enough to announce it at TGS. As announcing that the Japanese will get it last while being in japan is a stupid idea & as said here, they would be leaving it a little late also.

Yes this, while it's cheaper than X1, I think it's time for them to announce a release date as to give people a chance to plan for the release.
sprinterboy  +   718d ago
I think 99% of gamers knew it was coming late 2013/early2014. If gamers have not saved now then that's there fault sorry. I will start saving for ps5 in 2018 to make sure I have the funds just like
I did for ps4 ( started saving early 2012)
aiBreeze  +   718d ago
Well some of us don't have the luxury of being able to save an exclusive console fund. I won't have problems paying for it but with it being potentially close to Christmas, it would be nice to have some advanced notice.. especially with booking a few days off work.

PS3, PSvita, and memory cards price cut. PS4 release date. New gameplay on existing titles. few new Reveals
kparks  +   718d ago
@numone they need to drop the vita 50 bucks or more and the memory cards WTF were they thinking 100$ for 32gb
Johnsonparts23  +   718d ago
Totally. Can't wait for my Amazon order to be updated with a solid ship date :)
assdan  +   717d ago
Sony said they will be giving the solid release date at gamescon I'm pretty sure.
iamnsuperman  +   718d ago
Does anyone know why GimmeGimmeGames thinks LBP3 would be a PS3 game. LBP is a big franchise. Doing another PS3 game delays LBP being established on the PS4 platform. They need to get it early so more PS4 compatible levels are made for when more people pick up the system for another LBP.
jackanderson1985  +   718d ago
didn't sony say they'd continue to support the PS3 for a while? this could be the reason why
HammadTheBeast  +   718d ago
How much more can they do? They've already put GT6 and Beyond and Pupetter for PS3, any more than that and the few others, and it would be bad for PS4 sales.
jackanderson1985  +   718d ago

just thinking down the line with all the rage in HD re-releases they could do it in a few years and cash in twice on the same game
mrbojingles  +   718d ago
Past resumes have hinted at game being worked on by Sumo Digital for PS3 for "over a year". Every LBP3 rumor in the past year has hinted that its for PS3 and PS4.

Nyromith  +   718d ago
Last Guardian or it didn't happen.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   718d ago
Wouldn't that be better suited for TGS though? Along with Persona, etc.
iMixMasTer872   718d ago | Spam
Roper316  +   718d ago
again like with the release date I feel you're going to wait until TGS for any Last guardian info.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   718d ago
LBP 3 on PS4, and a release date for that bad boy would be nice.
GribbleGrunger  +   718d ago
Expect some big multi-media announcements as well as game related news.
XboxFun  +   718d ago
Do you have a link for this rumor?

Joke, hence the sarcasm "/s"

I thought it was funny. Btw why the low bubbles, you're one of the most neutral people on this site. Well aside from the username
XboxFun  +   718d ago
I was marked for trolling just once and lost a bubble.

I'm pretty sure I also had a well said some where and didn't gain a thing, but one troll comment and instant bubble burst.

Oh well, it was expected sooner or later with a name like mine to draw crazy heat and attention.
GribbleGrunger  +   718d ago
Sorry about that, XboxFun, I misunderstood. Bubbles as an apology.

BABY-JEDI  +   718d ago
Sounds a solid list to me...
Maybe Heavenly Sword 2, that would rock..

BitbyDeath  +   718d ago

Hbomb007  +   718d ago
Im pretty sure Microsoft are gonna pull out the stops. I was all for the Ps4. But after doing a little more research. Microsoft most definitely have the better and stronger machine. I cant help but feel sony play a very convincing act of confidence ... but looking back over this gen.. theres literally nothing Sony do better than Microsoft. The Ui on xbox is better. The controls. The service. The everything!
Next gen is boxed off.. ps4 is what id say .. the console for the " uneducated gamer"
Goro  +   718d ago
Your comment hurt my eyes
ABeastNamedTariq  +   718d ago
Lol @ "better and stronger".

Better is subjective, but it's a fact that PS4 is stronger (maybe not by a lot, but it is stronger).

Oh, I see you joined less than 30 minutes ago. Hmm..
xKugo  +   718d ago
The margin of it's strength is wide, but because the console is new, it's predicted that they'll maintain parity until devs actually utilize the PS4s strengths. Speaking of strength, why has Microsoft come out with a clearly inferior product two generations in a row now. This is the question Xbox fans should be asking.
Major_Glitch  +   718d ago
Lol. Worst attempt at trolling...ever. Please tell me exactly how the x1 is the "better and stronger" machine.
Picnic  +   718d ago
To be fair , every Xbox has had 'strong' visuals in some of its games. Whereas Sony games tend to veer more towards slightly less colourful realism, Xbox games tend to like using strong colour veering on arcadey, something instantly flashy to impress at a party. Look at Killer Instinct for instance. Microsoft are covering a lot of genres.

Which may be more appropriate for their 'living room ' strategy where an easily understood statement can count for more than the nuances that you'd chew over in your bedroom.

'Nothing Sony do better than Microsoft' like what exactly? Please explain?
aiBreeze  +   718d ago
Obvious troll/shill is obvious. I doubt you will be enjoying either console, to do so would be to leave the keyboard and stop trolling.
Dude Dutch  +   718d ago
Joined some MINUTES ago, and then you talk like you,ve already lost it. Jees.
xKugo  +   718d ago
As soon as you said that Microsoft had better "controls and "service", I immediately lost all interest in your comment.

Also, I would love to know how you came to the conclusion that the Xbox One is the stronger machine. LOL

Goro  +   718d ago
I'm hoping for the PS4 release date, some new game announcements for PS4, some AAA game announcements for Vita & maybe Yakuza 5 =D
PeteDoherty  +   718d ago
A PS4 release date, some current and new games shown of (Uncharted 4 + The Order 1886 would be nice). Also a Vita bundle and prize cut revealed with a few new games. Oh and The Last Guardian, pretty please. Maybe I'm stretching it.
xKugo  +   718d ago
Last Guardian may be a slight bit to far.
Wishful thinking at this point...
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   718d ago
Im thinking well see tge order 1886 gameplay,and well get a ps4 release date,maybe a new game announcement,exclusive third party deals.
WooHooAlex  +   718d ago
It seems a little too soon for them to be announcing their internet TV service, they reached an agreement less than 24 hours ago. That seems more like a 2014 unveiling to me, but who knows, if the infrastructure has already been in development for a while maybe they're ready to show it off now.

All I really want to see from Sony at Gamescom is the PS4 launch dates confirmed, Media Molecule's PS4 game and a few new Vita titles announced. I'm pretty confident we'll get all of those anything else will be just icing on the cake.

xReDeMpTiOnx  +   718d ago
We will see killzone Shadowfall mp gameplay which is one of the biggest things on my list.

But I'm already happy knowing spawn beacons are coming back :)
BABY-JEDI  +   718d ago
Is that spawn grenades or areas of occupation where your team mates can spawn? Spawn grenades for the world!
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   718d ago
They haven't clarified on how they will work but below is what is officially confirmed.

- spawn beacons are back
- "support class" has spawn beacons and air bots (aka the tactician)
- GG is really pushing customization with your Charecter and how matches play out.
- humilation moves will be preformd by the top player of the winning team over the top player of the opposing losing team after the game.
BABY-JEDI  +   718d ago
Many thanks for the reply, I really think it will be like KZ3 spawn points which was all about the snipers lining up @ the spawn beacons

Wait wait wait...

So, the PS4 will be able to do cable television WITHOUT having to plug in a cable box?

What magic is this?!?
GdaTyler  +   718d ago
Some more Vita AAA titles would be showing some love. I know Shahid Ahmad is trying really hard but when he means Vita love I hope he means also AAA games and not more indies. Indies are good but it won't bring the Vita that far. We need big titles from our developers. Infamous or GTA Vita would make me cry.
nooneknows  +   718d ago
LBP3 in 3D for the PS4.
Media Molecule's new IP for PS4.
Sony Santa Monica new IP for PS4.
Naughty Dog Uncharted 4 or New IP teaser.
Ovonvisco(Or how ever you say their name) new IP.
PS4/Vita bundle at $500
christrules0041  +   718d ago
They are predicitng LBP3 for the PS3, $200 PS3s and new Vita games and the release date for the PS4 but no new games for the PS4? Come on they have only showed 5 out of the 20 exclusives to launch year one. They should be showing new games for the PS4 as well....
brew  +   718d ago
Sony may have shown more than the 5 though (in their minds). I don't think they ever clarified.

- Planetside 2
- DCU Online
- Smaller downloadable games published by Sony

And I think we can expect to see MLB The Show 14 for the PS4

So there might be about 10 more Sony published titles to go including downloadables. Housemarque has been teasing their game reveal.

Could be right about the two F2P games but your third point is wrong as Sony don't publish indie games, they are self-published.
brew  +   718d ago
No. Sony publishes DL games as do many other publishers. Devs just have the option of not going through a publisher and doing it themselves.
Akuma2K  +   718d ago
I hope submarines and battleships are finally announced and confirmed for BF4, with the armored and air superiority modes already in BF3 i'm sure they'll be included in BF4 too and DICE can complete the trifecta by adding naval superiority mode as well......it'll be the complete package having all aspects of combat in the game.
fOrlOnhOpe57  +   718d ago
Wasnt there something about GG working on a new IP, a while back? It can't have been Kz:Mercs as thats still in the Killzone Universe so that doesnt really count.
I love Killzone but Ive been intrigued just what else Guerrilla Games could turn their hand to.
Something else for PS4, besides Shadowfall, perhaps?
brew  +   718d ago
Herman Hulst (from Guerrilla) has confirmed that they are indeed working on a new IP for the PS4.

Guerrilla Cambridge is Guerrilla Game's sister studio and they are working on Killzone Mercenary currently.

Rimeskeem  +   718d ago
Release date would be nice and also showing what playstation Tv does and more exclusive titles plz
strigoi814  +   718d ago
Only if Sony ask the audience on stage what date do they want the PS4 be released then deliver..will hear chants again lmao

Jack walks on stage, announces release date, drops the mic and walks off the stage while handing out free ps4s.

Like a boss.
imahustla19  +   718d ago
the rumoured october release date is based off an unnamed console being released. n e 1 remember the PS Vita patent sony filed about a year ago for a vita with an HDMI out? i think that is what that will be. the PS4 will probably release in NOV. i hope im wrong tho cant wait to get my PS4
Picnic  +   718d ago
18 disagrees without a single explanation? I love my PS3 but you really are giving XboxOne hate a bad name and will probably turn me towards what you'd regard as 'the dark side'.
Ketzicorn  +   717d ago
I hope Sony announces whether they will allow game capture cards or not. Their really is no reason not to as MS and Sony are now using Blu Ray and MS is allowing all game capture cards so I hope they do.
